NEW PFLUEGER PRESIDENT  XT SPINING REEL SERIES!

Recommended Posts

I would rather wait to try it for at least a whole season before I make that choice. My President spinning reels, are my favorite, and the Trion not far behind. I have never ,ever had an issue with their graphite bodies.

Wonder what it's price will be??  If it's aluminum then it's going to be mostly just like the old Medalist before it got it's new upgrade.  Guessing maybe $80 like the Medalist was before it based on that assumption.  I like the maroon color but I don't like that they don't offer it in a 35 size.  They should offer it in all sizes if they are going to the trouble to make it.

What he said, the Medalist went into the giveaway stash and has a new owner as of last season.

Lighter, smoother, 30 bucks less and I have never had a problem with a President. I have used them extensively.

I did not like the Medalist especially the bail. I flip the bail by hand, I just wasn't 30 bucks more impressed with the Medalist.

i was thinking about getting one , but im very happy with my president 6725. also , after reading around some , ive seen people say they have had problems with the bail also.  :-/

oh well , i know sports authority had the president combos at $57 and some change last time i was there. not bad.

btw , i kinda like the color of them but still prefer the blue-ish.

Interesting that Pflueger's blue President reel will now become red at just about the time that the United States' "red" president (republican) will now become "blue" (democrat).

Not trying to get a politics war started, I'm only just making a joke. I have a blue President reel that my wife refers to as "Hillary".

Whats weird is that the 2009 catalog has the president xt being black, with a 35 size.

Its alright for me cause I like the supremes, but what I really want to know is when the president rods come out.

The President is dark blue, always has been and yes it comes in size 6735, the new reel is the President xl, the standard President will continue to be made,

 The President Rods are available in spinning only currently, if you go on Amazon or Yahoo you can find a few outlets for them they are selling fo 50 bucks a pop

The Medalist was 79 when I bought it , ( not the Gander model) and the  president was 59. I should have said 20 bucks, my mistake. I still have the recipts, clipped to the warranties.

They just added a Supreme XT < I am starting to think that these XT reels are for Salt Water use, by how they are built

I'm expecting them to be $80 to $90 by how they're made.  Just like the Medalist of 2008, 10 bearings and aluminum frame with rubber grip.  I like the way they look, maroon color and all.  Don't really need one, but if I'm gonna get another spinning reel this coming year (and I am, just the wife doesn't know yet, haha) then I'd consider this new President XT.......but I really wish they made it in a 35 size.  I may just have to get another "regular" President, the blue one that is.

The old Medalist didn't have On / Off anti-reverse (Muddy can correct me if I am wrong). Same problem as the Infusion. They were very heavy, in my opinion they were made more for saltwater fishing than fresh.
